Mo Brooks named ‘Taxpayer Super Hero’
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) on Thursday released its 2019 congressional ratings, with Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) being named as only one of 27 members of the U.S. House of Representatives to earn a perfect score and the coveted “Taxpayer Super Hero” title.
CCAGW is a leading American grassroots group that promotes fiscally responsible government.
The congressional ratings evaluate key tax, spending, transparency and accountability votes.
In a statement, Brooks said, “The CCAGW is one of America’s leading nonpartisan, nonprofit grassroots advocacy organizations focused on eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government. I’m honored the group named me, one of only 27 House members to receive the honor, a 2019 ‘Taxpayer Super Hero’ for my 100% financially responsible voting record.”
“America’s national debt blew through $23 trillion in November, $24 trillion in April, and $25 trillion in May,” he continued. “In April, the federal government set a new record for the largest ever monthly deficit increase at $738 billion. With Socialists in Washington clamoring to bankrupt America, destroy America, and reshape America into a Socialist country, financial responsibility is more important now than ever. The Socialists cannot win! I’ll continue fighting for financial responsibility and voting to avoid a disastrous American insolvency and bankruptcy. I’m glad to have CCAGW as an ally in the fight.”
